You are certainly well aware of Google Chrome. Now, Google is going to launch ‘Fuchsia’ as its new operating system. Google has been testing this new platform for almost an year and now the users will get it on Pixelbook.
The whole Google team is working on its smooth running, but it’s still not easy to make it run properly. Hardware’s three obscure pieces, 2015 old Intel NUCs, Acer Switch Alpha 12 laptop and the Pixelbook, are being supported by Fuchsia. Vulkan support is necessary for graphics stack of Fuchsia, however, it can run easily on QEMU, an open source emulator, which doesn’t carry any Vulkan assistance. It means QEMU can lead you to have a command line, but it will not be possible to get the display of Fuchsia’s interface.
Currently, Fuchsia will not work on smartphones, as its installation doesn’t assist targets based on the ARM. However, its installation process on Pixelbook is quite peculiar. Its always recommended by Google to use a USB drive for the proper installation of an OS, however, to get Fuchsia OS run, the users are not recommended to use USB drive at all. This is because, on the USB drive, the media creation process may become destructive, while installing it.
After Android and Chrome OS, Pixelbook will be the third OS by Google. Along with proving itself superior to all other operating systems, assuredly it will give a hard competition to other OS of Google too. However, everyone is quiet about its launch. As Google releases its products only after making it perfect and having all the testing on it. That’s why Google is not ready to talk about its new operating system yet. This project is still behind the curtains. So it would definitely take time to make it perfect before launching it in the public. Moreover, when Android was introduced to the public, it had passed a long development process of 5 years. So, with Fuchsia, the same can be expected and the users can get its final version around 2020.
